“Intensive special patrol and the mobile court are aimed at addressing the spate of avoidable road crashes usually associated with the surge of human and vehicular traffic during Eid el-Kabir,” explained Mr. Udoma, adding, “All our men are on the road to arrest all defaulters on our highways and our goal is to reduce unexpected death of road users due to drivers’ carelessness or road obstructions.”

Udoma said FRSC would not relent in its efforts to change the driving culture of road users in the country.

Speaking further, Mr. Udoma, who described driving as a noble profession, expressed the commission’s determination to ensure that only professional drivers handle vehicles on the nation’s highways.

“If only experienced and professional drivers drive on our roads,” he noted, “accidents will reduce drastically.”
